I have read all the articles, comments and contributions until last week.
First of all, I would like to congratulate the ICAE on one more virtual seminar, a special possibility of staying connected in reflection and dialogue for lifelong education.
My comment goes mainly in the same direction of Rosa Torres’ comment, and I would like to emphasize two aspects:
GREAT COMMENT Robert Juuko!
It will be so interesting to share deepening on these questions, close to others e.g. Rosa Maria Torres.
Complementing articles and comments.
Those are the questions I meant when I wrote insisting on PRINCIPLES AND VALUES education should reinforce when building capacity on skills.
My best regards to everyone who participates in this seminar.

En primer lugar, quisiera felicitar al ICAE por un seminario virtual más, una posibilidad tan especial de mantenernos conectados en la reflexión y el diálogo en pro de la educación a lo largo de la vida.
Mi comentario va sobre todo en el mismo sentido de Rosa Torres, y quisiera reforzar dos aspectos:
Mis mejores saludos a todas y todos quienes participan de este seminario.
Thanks for giving the possibility to express my views in this virtual seminar.
I will not repeat what has been presented by he colleagues who preceded me.They have referred to issues that need reflection to what are the possible approaches to advance in the quality of educational specially addressed to young people. From REPEM as well as from ICAE I have bee presenting at national , regional and international level that education and special non formal education should prepare women ( and men9 to exercise their citizenship. The curriculum specially in non formal education should prepare young and adults to exercise their human rights. and build future life, I agree very much with the presentation made by Roberto Guevara where he specially refer to the value of soft skills “to secure “success in today’s world, particularly in contemporary careers and workplaces” (Sharma 2016).”
I agree soft skills should help young people not only for work but also for life. f The Australian research, that Guevara refer to highlight that the eight transferable skills “problem-solving, communication skills, digital literacy, teamwork, financial literacy, creativity, critical thinking and presentation skills”. But again these should help for work al life including to exercise their human rights.
In the discussions of the ODS, I did defend that the approach of non formal education should contain a holistic focus to prepare young and adult to exercise their citizenship.
But unfortunately this was not finally introduced … and as Timothy say currently there is no space to attempt to situate this discussion within the context of the 2030 International Development Agenda “. But we hope that during the monitoring and follow-up in country discussion these issues will arise.
